On the next play, Brady was intercepted by Chiefs safety Daniel Sorensen.

A Chiefs fan has been fined $500 for shining a laser pointer at Tom Brady during this year's AFC championship, TMZ Sports reported on Wednesday.

Dwyan Morgan, a 64-year-old resident of Lee's Summit, Missouri, pleaded guilty to a charge of disturbing the peace.

Morgan told Inside Edition in May that he was surprised to be cited by prosecutors and said "I shouldn't have done it", although he said he wasn't "gonna apologize to Brady or the Patriots". A cameraman for KMBC-TV caught the incident, which occurred in the fourth quarter of the overtime game, and the Chiefs identified the fan - not a season ticket holder - who shined the laser in February after reviewing the videotape and talking to eyewitnesses. Prosecutors say Brady was unaware of the laser.

The NFL has a longstanding ban on laser pointers, which can cause eye damage. Brady and the Patriots, of course, won the game 37-31 and went on to win Super Bowl LIII.
